KARATE not short-listed for Buenos Aires

The Karate Family feels very proud of its extraordinary evolution in the last few years as it has been stated before the IOC Executive Board in the presentation that the World Karate Federation has performed on the 29th of May in S. Petersburg.

Unfortunately, the IOC has decided not to include Karate in the shortlist of sports candidates that will travel to Buenos Aires in September for the final decision of the IOC Session.

The WKF wants to thank to all its member Federations and individuals over the world for their support and commitment and encourages them to keep on working with the same passion and faith for the continued progress of our sport.
